Water Efficiency Management Guide for Landscaping and Irrigation
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides basic information about landscaping and irrigation and discusses the different approaches and technologies utilized to ensure efficient outdoor water use. 

 

Most of the residential outdoor water in the United States is used for landscape irrigation. In fact, as much as half the residential outdoor water is wasted through evaporation, wind, or runoff. Many factors are either directly or indirectly responsible for this loss among which; improper irrigation system design and installation as well as poor maintenance. Thus, improved landscaping, effective maintenance practices and efficient irrigation equipment can significantly reduce water use, prevent its loss and decrease costs from property landscapes.

 

This 1 PDH online course is applicable to environmental, civil and landscape engineers who are interested in improving outdoor water efficiency by learning proper landscape design, irrigation techniques and the different equipment that help reduce water use.
